Emanuel von Baeyer

Saint Jerome

Johann Georg Rothbletz (Rotpletz, Roblez)
born in Alsace and worked from 1719 in Augsburg – died after 1751 in Augsburg

Etching. Sheet size: 23.2 x 14.9 cm. Watermark: Remnants of a fleur-de-lis. Undescribed.

Very fine, harmonious impression with small margins around the borderline.

Nagler only knew two prints by this master, whom he described as active in seventeenth-century Augsburg. Thieme-Becker mentions three prints, not including ours. (Thieme-Becker, vol. 29, p.90)
An extremly rare print.
